The renovation of a 100 years old historical library building to accommodate the new technology forlibraries in the new century.
The building is located in a difficult & congested site of Cairo City Center, surrounded by mixed use oldbuildings, with the Museum of Islamic Art occupying the ground, street level floor & garden area.
Renovation & development works include introduction of: (1) a new floating freeform steel structure floorsupported on the bearing walls of the old building as a mean to increase the spaces of the floor area toaccommodate new and modified functions of the oldest national library building in Egypt. (2) a newbasement to be constructed under the existing museum garden area. The construction of the basement inthis particularly sensitive site forms a challenge to the contractor and project manager alike.
